Tomato Aava Pulihora

Twisting The Traditional,event from My Innovative Kitchen has chosen Pulihora for this month,Pulihora is a very popular dish which is mainly an offering for God during festivals.I don't like pulihora,my mom makes it very rarely as none of us in the house like it the way we love other flavored rice like Biriyani or Pulao,so seeing this month's item I was very eager to see the innovative creations from fellow bloggers.

I chose Tomato Aava Pulihora as I never tried making Pulihora with Aava Pindi.I gave a try,it was too gud.Here goes the recipe....

Ingredients:

Tomatoes:3 no(medium size)
Tamarind:Medium Goose Berry Size(take thick pulp out of this Tamarind by adding water)
Rice:1 cup(cooked)
Peas:1/4 cup(optional)
Carrot:1 no(peeled n grated)

For Tempering:

Oil:3 spns
Chenna Dal:2 spns
Urad Dal:1.5 spn
Cumin Seeds:1 spn
Mustard Seeds:1 spn
Groundnuts:2 spns
Broken Cashew:1 spn
Hinge:3/4 spn
Green Chillies:6-7(slit length wise)
Dry Red Chillied:5 no
Curry Leaves:20 no
Turmeric Powder:1 spn
Salt:To Taste

Ground To Coarse Powder:
Mustard Seeds:2 spn (dry roast the mustard seeds and make them into powder)

Procedure:


Heat oil in a pan,when hot add chenna dal,urad dal,ground nuts and fry till they turn golden color now add cumin seeds and mustard seeds when they start splatter no add broken cashews,dry red chillies,green chillies,hinge,turmeric powder,curry leaves and fry well,when done now add the cut tomato pieces,mix well,cover and cook till tender.Now add the tamarind pulp,salt to taste and fry the mixture uncovered till the mixture become thick,Finally add the cooked green peas,grated carrot,ground mustard powder,mix and fry on low flame for 2 mins.Add this done tamarind mixture to the cooked rice and mix evenly.


I Served it with curd and chips.The addition of mustard powder enhanced the taste of the dish and adding peas,carrot and tomato made this Pulihora much more interesting.
